Weekend Words of Inspiration and THREE giveaways!

Butterfly Muse

Butterfly spottings for me have always signified coming change or a stroke of good luck. While they appear light as a feather as they float past us, if one has ever landed on your finger you'll notice immediately that they do have weight. You feel them. They are not as light and feathery as they look!

Are you deceptively 'light' on the outside but  'heavy' on the inside? Is what you portray really what you are?

Let's explore using Butterflies as our Muse this weekend. The timing couldn't be better. The weekend allows you to drop one of your weights, your 'work weight', making you a little 'lighter' and allowing you to soar that much higher.

Allow the weekend energy to make you into a butterfly of sorts, floating up higher and higher, or floating around from 'flower to flower' in your case your personal pursuits are that flower. Those things you keep saying you'll do when you 'have more time'. That time is here, the leaves are changing color, the days are getting shorter and it's getting dark earlier. Let the Butterfly be your muse. Do something personal you've been putting off for way too long. Will it be a scrapbook? Re-decorating a room in your home? Feel free to share where your creative energies take you!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I allow my inner butterfly to be my muse and guide me to something creative.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
